Fighting The Smears – Public Pictures And Swami Premananda
Ex-Devotees (in particular Robert Priddy and Psychic Trance Medium Conny Larsson) have whined considerably about the fact that Joe Moreno (a Pro-Sai Activist) removed his picture from his personal website. The argument made by Ex-Devotees is that the absence of Moreno’s public picture is indicative of deceit and dishonesty. Let us take a closer look at what Conny Larsson published about Moreno on his Anti-Baba domain (similar arguments against Moreno have been made on Robert Priddy’s Anti-Baba blog as well):
“Joe Moreno originally had the photo of himself as above on his website, but he he removed it very soon after he began his attacks on ExBaba and associates. Why did he feel the need to do this? Is he worried that he could be recognised by people in the Sai movement when he goes to India etc.? It is true that thieves like anonymity and the dark, and it seems this also applies to thieves of copyright materials and defamers who fear consequences. By engaging in debate as a public figure on the www, he has – according to US law – to put up with his face (or rather his own ‘bust’) and chosen setting being exhibited by participant and observer parties.”
When Moreno provided a screencap to a public domain picture of Robert Priddy and Kai Nicolai Priddy, the image was immediately removed. Why did Robert Priddy feel the need to do that? Is he a “thief” who likes “anonymity and the dark”?
When Moreno provided screencaps to public domain pictures of Conny Larsson giving “psychic trance healings” on various women, those pictures were immediately removed. Why did Conny Larsson feel the need to do that? Is he a “thief” who likes “anonymity and the dark”?
To Date: One will not find a single picture of the vocal ex-devotees: Barry Pittard, Brian Steel, Dave Lyons, Reidun Priddy, Dennis Hanisch, Arthur Klein, Randi Godager, Julian O’Donnell, Terry Gallagher, Stephen Carthew, Jens Sethi, Gurprit Sethi, UsedByBaba, Barbara Dent, Hari Sampath, NitWit Nastik, Hariram Jayaram, William Lo, Glen Meloy (now deceased), Richard Nelson, Roy Pendragon, Shirley Pike, Sharon Purcell (now deceased), Rick Raines, Diana Scott (Payne), among numerous other critics and ex-devotees. As a matter of fact, even Robert Priddy did not make his image publicly available on his Anti-Baba websites for many years (only recently did he add very small thumbnail-sized pictures to them).
Why do critics demand that Moreno provide his picture publicly when many of those in the Anti-Sai Movement haven’t done so themselves? The answer: Self-serving hypocrisy, pure and simple! Robert Priddy and Conny Larsson made the argument that Moreno is a “thief of copyright material” because he copied their pictures to his websites. However, Robert Priddy, Conny Larsson, Alan Kazlev and Reinier Van Der Sandt have all published Moreno’s picture on their Anti-Baba websites and blogs. Therefore, what does that make them? You guessed it: thieves of copyright material”!
NOTE TO EX-DEVOTEES: Please come forward with your pictures and post them publicly for all to see or all of you will be seen as hypocrites, faceless cowards and “thieves” who “like anonymity and the dark”. Have the courage to put into practice the standards that Robert Priddy and Conny Larsson demand from Moreno. Otherwise, your silence and failure to act will invalidate Robert Priddy and Conny Larsson’s self-serving arguments and justify Moreno’s choice not to publish his picture.
Regarding Swami Premananda:
Furthermore, Robert Priddy said:
Robert Priddy: “Having removed his personal account and any details about himself from his vishvarupa.com website, Moreno still defends the convicted murderer and rapist Swami Premananda (double life sentence confirmed by Supreme Court Appeal) at vishvarupa.com, though he has removed former materials about that too!”
First and foremost, Moreno’s “personal account and details” were never (ever) published on his vishvarupa.com domain (hence Priddy’s inability to find that information). Conny Larsson & Co. were the first ones to disperse this total disinformation about Moreno. As one can see, Robert Priddy is a gullible and naive sciolist who relies on other’s black propaganda to make his arguments against Moreno.
It is also amusing that Robert Priddy claimed that Moreno removed material about Swami Premananda from his vishvarupa.com domain. In truth, Moreno’s material about Swami Premananda was never removed from his website: See for yourself. One is left to wonder where exactly Robert Priddy is getting his disinformation from and why he miserably failed to double check his facts before attempting to peddle his shoddy lies as the pristine truth.
Click Here too read how the UK’s leading DNA expert, Dr. Wilson J. Wall, testified that the DNA samples used to convict Swami Premananda were fraudulent. As a matter of fact Dr. Wilson J. Wall said the following about the court cases against Swami Premananda:
Dr. Wilson J. Wall: “Someone is trying to set-up Swami Premananda. The DNA case is a fabrication from start to finish. This deception throws a terrible shadow over validity of DNA fingerprinting if now there are scientists who are prepared to misuse it to find the innocent guilty.”
The book “The DNA Detectives” by Dr. W.J. Wall (which was published in August 2005) explains the fraudulent use of DNA evidence in the Swami Premananda case. Also, all of the alleged rape victims said they were tortured into giving false testimonies by the police and have since recanted their statements against Swami Premananda and have returned to his ashram.
Robert Priddy libeled Moreno as being sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba and similarly claimed that Moreno removed his interview experience from his website (a bold faced lie). Moreno’s interview is still available on the internet and has never been removed: See For Yourself.
Robert Priddy’s atrocious researching abilities result in utter fiascoes of disinformation that are wildy and recklessly propagated as “irrefutable truth”! It is beyond dispute that the quaesitum of Robert Priddy’s rodomontades is the implementation of conniving techniques to woo over fatuitous egotists (which come a dime-a-dozen in the Anti-Sai movement) by using gutter tactics such as scapegoating, conspiracy theory, black propaganda and demagoguery.
Robert Priddy has effectively negated himself as a credible factor in the Anti-Sai-Baba movement and his proxy allegations, unsubstainated accusations and bold-faced libels can best be compared to sand castles that have been demolished and now blow across Ozymandias’s dead empire.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter’d visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear:
“My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
By substituting the name of Ozymandias with “Robert Priddy”, Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem seems remarkably apropos…
